Empire : the British imperial experience from 1765 to the present by Denis Judd( Book )

43 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this impressively researched and always entertaining book, the esteemed British historian Denis Judd analyzes the imperial experience from the American Revolution to the present day. He examines the ways in which Empire affected both rulers and ruled, and the roles of significant personalities - from Queen Victoria to Nelson Mandela, Cecil Rhodes to Jomo Kenyatta, Joseph Chamberlain to Mahatma Gandhi. What was so special about the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States? Did the maintenance of the Empire artificially prolong Britain's Great Power status, camouflaging economic and national decline? Did it encourage chauvinistic, even racist, attitudes? Were subjects better off under the British than they would have been under their own elites and leaders? What was the difference between exploitation and development? In the end, what does the balance sheet of Empire look like?
The Boer War by Denis Judd( Book )

32 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Boer War was an epic both of heroism and of barbarism. Fought by the British against the Dutch inhabitants of South Aftrica, the Boer War had an extraordinary cast of characters including Commanders-in chief buller, Roberts and Kitchener, Winston Churchill, Arthur Conan Doyle, Emily Hobhouse, Rudyard Kipling, and Gandhi. The war revealed the ineptitude of the British military, and exposed the corrupt underside of British imperialism . For the first time, Judd and Surridge debunk several myths. There was not, for instance, a straightforward divide between the Boers and British. In fact, the overriding aim of both sides was to maintain European supremacy and to keep Africans and Indians "in their place." Giving us a sense of how the Apartheid era was born, The Boer War is a gripping read. -- from the publisher's description

21 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Denis Judd tells the fascinating story of the remarkable British impact upon India, capturing the essence of what the Raj really meant both for the British and their Indian subjects. All aspects of this long and controversial relationship are discussed: the first tentative contacts between East and West, the foundation of the East India Company in 1600, the Victorian Raj in all its pomp and splendour, Gandhi's revolutionary tactics to overthrow the Raj and restore India to the Indians, and Lord Mountbatten's 'swift surgery of Partition' in 1947, creating the independent Commonwealth states of India and Pakistan."--Jacket

Someone has blundered; calamities of the British Army in the Victorian Age by Denis Judd( Book )

8 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During Queen Victoria's reign British power was at its zenith: the export trade boomed, the Royal Navy ruled the waves, huge chunks of the map were coloured red. Yet almost every year saw British troops in action in some part of the globe. From the equatorial rain-forests of Ghana to the green hills of New Zealand, British redcoat, Indian mercenary and colonial volunteers fought for Queen and Empire - and mostly won. This fascinating book examines the other side of the Victorian penny - times when the soldiers of the Queen stumbled. The narrative contains an analysis of various catastrophes, including the Retreat from Kabul in 1842, the Charge of the Light Brigade at Baclava, the 1879 Invasion of Zululand, and the Battles of Majuba Hill and Spion Kop
